    • Small Cold & Generic, We recently purchased a 1988 townhome that up until now had been an income, rental property since 2004 and not given much love at all!
With limited space and black older appliances we decided to work with what we had for the time being, and remodel pulling the black into the equation while freshening up the look.
We painted oak cabinets white and put on new black hardware, painted the walls with banana cream color with a steel blue dining room accent wall cut partially into the kitchen countertop area, put down new Pergo flooring that flows in the main living/dining area, and put in new countertops, black composite sink and the ?center of the kitchen? faucet.
Florescent light was also oak so we painted it white and put in new sky scape panels to diffuse the bright light., Kitchens Design
